How much protein should I be getting daily being type O? I'm 18 and weigh 155 pounds. Is it better to eat protein in the morning, afternoon, or evening?

You should follow the guidelines for protein in the LR4YT book and def protein in the morning and evening. I would have some at lunch as well, but I would be sure on the other 2 meals.

It also depends on how active you are. Do you get a lot of exercise? Lift weights? Following the guidelines in the books at average values for a male would seem to be the practical course.

To be honest, I couldn't find any specific daily values for grams of protein in Live Right for you Type. He does recomend a number of ouces of red meat per week though. But what I'm looking for is a number in grams of protein per day.

Normally, I would go for a 15 minute run in the morning and a weight workout in the evening, for bout 20 minutes. Every day.

Right. Ounces can be converted to grams. Weekly amounts can be converted to daily amounts. Don't forget fish!

The problem with grams of protein is like counting calories. Why make it so complicated, unless you are a bodybuilder or something?

If you want true protein counts you need to add up the protein parts of all foods, including grains, legumes, eggs and dairy. You get the idea. There is no specific recommendation for protein in the BTD, because protein is not a food. Diets are made of food, not of carbs and fat and protein, whatever anyone else tries to tell you!

I guess the main reason why I'm asking this, is to know if I'm getting too much or not enough. But I get what you're telling me. Thanks for your help

What you can do is keep a diary of food that you eat for a period of time, then input it into nutritiondata.com and let it analyze your consumption. It may make you feel better.

I did so and put my results in THIS THREAD. I'm a much larger guy than you so my intake may seem out of context, it will give you an idea.

Since you are fairly active (like a healthy teen) you might consider using slightly more than the average values in LR4YT. You can adjust this after you've had some time on the diet, you'll know if you need more.

Easiest way for me to tell if I am not getting enough, is to listen to my cravings.   If I need to throw a whole side of beef on the grill, I'm not getting enough.  If I think I can grill 2 32oz Porterhouse Steaks and eat it faster than my husband, I'm not getting enough.  If I want to go to my favorite sushi restaurant and order the whole tuna with a side of garlic sauce, I'm not getting enough.

If you are still hungery for meat, you need a bit more.

Evan, I have found that I m in a position to need less protein than I have been eating...I am working with the arthritis book and the portions of meat are a lot smaller, which is specific to arthritis, so it is relative to the individual.

I hope you're not too frustrated by the lack of hard and fast rules here.  The idea to trust your body to tell you what it needs is a bit scary for some people.  

Please give it a try and trust your body - your body is a beautiful thing in that it will tell you what it needs - if you are willing to listen.  

So if you find that you have just eaten a meal and the idea of a steak still makes you lick your lips in anticipation your protein intake is probably too low....if on the other hand you have eaten too much you will not feel satisfied but stuffed in the first instance and will notice weight gain etc in the long run...

Once you've found your normal range you'll find that your protein needs will vary with stress levels, activity levels etc.
